This Week In Cougar Athletics History
April 8, 2001
A football game broke out at Bailey-Brayton field during this Sunday afternoon.
Shortstop Bookie Gates led all Cougar hitters recording a perfect 5-of-5 day to go with six RBI in leading WSU to a 17-14 win over the Arizona Wildcats.
The 17 runs were the most for the Cougars this season, but they had to hold on for the win as WSU had jumped out to a 14-5 advantage.
Gates finished the game a triple away from the cycle. In addition, Adrian Thomas, Mike Knight, and Stefan Bailie were a productive top of the lineup for the Cougars, combining for nine hits in 15 at-bats with four RBI and 10 runs.

Tore Gustafsson uncorked a multi-record setting hammer toss of 247-8 to headline a dual meet romp by the Cougars over Kansas State and Weber State.
Gustafsson, a native of Goteborg, Sweden, also had tosses of 245-5 and 244-8, but the highlight was the record-setting effort, which set six records in itself (Swedish, Pac-10, WSU, Mooberry Track, and two dual meets). The toss bested the Pac-10 mark, set just a week earlier, by five feet.
The men defeated Kansas State 124-36 and Weber State 140-21.
